Mother-daughter duo Lori Schmidtke and Kirsten Schmidtke are the beauty and brains behind fashion accessories brand Klas squared. Born from a need to be creative, to leave an impact, and to build something to call their own, the pair teamed up to develop designs that make women feel joyful, feminine, and powerful. Together, these two women have learned that the potential of working together far exceeds what they could achieve individually. By acknowledging one’s weaknesses were the other’s strengths, they soon realized the impact of working together ultimately discovering the Power of Two.
The Power of Two has exponential potential: once you stand beside and in support of another woman you are amplifying her voice, her cause, her power. At Klas squared, we feel this connection to women not only in designing jewelry, but how our jewelry can transcend connection and confidence among women.
At Klas squared, we ensure our designs are functional and fashionable without compromising quality. It is important that our pieces are not only timeless in aesthetic, but can stand the test of time due to the quality of materials and craftsmanship. Our jewelry is designed from a palette of sterling silver, 18k gold filled, Swarovski crystals and pearls, and semi-precious stones, all hand crafted by our Lead Designer, Lori. Klas squared continues to use sustainable processes, practices, and materials in designing each collection to ensure we are making the world a better place for the women who lead us today and will lead us tomorrow.
